The Field Naturalists Club of Victoria (FNCV) was established in 1880 and is Victoria's oldest field naturalists club. The purpose of the formation of the FNCV was to gain an understanding of our natural world, not by mere study of what others have written, but by going out into the natural environment and examining it for ourselves. The reason for the FNCV's long existence is because the need to understand our ever changing environment has always been there. Early club members worked successfully for the reservation of Wilsons Promontory as a national park. The FNCV continues to thrive to this day. It is a very active club with close to 1000 members. There are nine special interest groups (SIGs), and a calendar of diverse events is devoted to the study of natural history.

    Probably, a worn R. lineata (note elytral ridge, and remnants of white maculation)
